Our dear colleague and friend, Matthew Naudi, passed away late last week, leaving us all shocked and saddened by his loss.

Matthew joined St Aloysius College as an LSE in 2013, and became a prefect soon after. He was also the founder of Whiz Team Adventure, which organises team-building adventure activities.

From students to fellow colleagues, many are those who cherish fond memories of Matthew, whose influence was immensely positive.

Thank you for all you have done for so many St Aloysius students and colleagues. Thank you for your attention, love and care you had as an LSE and a division prefect. Thank you for your love for life, sports and adventure. Thank you for remaining positive until the very end, even when faced with illness and suffering. Thank you for your faith. Now rest in eternal peace that God can give you.

– Fr Jimmy Bartolo sj, Rector

One aspect that always struck me about Matthew is that he was always keen to look at the bright side of even the most difficult circumstances. He never gave up on anyone and did his best to mentor all students under his care. On a personal level Matthew’s character was quite straight forward. It could be defined as what you see is what you get. Every now and then we would have brief discussions to establish a way forward with students under Matthew’s care and occasionally we would discuss other aspects of personal life too. Matthew’s positive approach will always be remembered by myself as well as anyone who was lucky enough to cross his or her path with him. His ability to bring a team together was another priceless asset, proving how a person can really be an agent of change. One can hardly add much more to all that has been posted on social media over the past few days other than saying that his friendship with anyone with whom he came in contact, as well as his dedication and loyalty towards college truly proved him to be a man for others, setting an example for us all. May the Lord grant him eternal rest in His glory.
– Mr Edwin Ungaro, Head of Secondary School
Matthew, thank you for your sincere friendship, for your honesty, and for your appreciation and love.
We will miss you. I would like us to carry your positivity in our work as well as our approach to life.
You have taught us a lot, dear friend. Until the last minute, you remained positive; spreading love.
This is one of the quotes which reminds me of you: Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
– Ms Vanessa Portanier, Assistant Head

Heartfelt condolences to Matthew’s family, especially his sister and our colleague, Anne Marie, as well as their relatives and friends.

We thank the Lord for Matthew’s life and work at St Aloysius College!
May his positive spirit live on in us all.

His funeral will be held on Wednesday, 23rd November at 2pm, in the Mosta Rotunda Parish Church (the Sanctuary Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady, Mosta).
It will be live-streamed on YouTube:
The video will also be available on YouTube for later viewing.
